We are so proud of our members who finished the NYC Marathon on Sunday, Nov 2 2014! Thanks to Lew who captured a shot of Tom, Lynn and Jessica as they crossed the finish line. That's Tom in black with the upraised arm in triumph, Lynn in pink, then Jessica. They trekked the 26.2 miles in unison and finished at 5:58 in brutal cold and wind. Shout out to Candy Curtiss who also finished. Way to go! You inspire us!
Congratulations you guys! Lynn Gray, Thomas Gray, Jessica Hessler, Candy Curtiss, Becky Dowden and Sheila Rogers

commentary by Lynn Gray
On Saturday, as we observed Candy Curtiss being so careful to watch our club table plus get all the runners' results with Ted at her side, I am reminded of the actual impact they both made on us all:
We always will "win" that which is before us when we have friends watching out for us.
